Continuing Legal Education (CLE)

Legal Learning Never Stops

Carolina Law’s Office of Continuing Legal Education offers year-round, affordable and engaging CLE opportunities for lawyers to fulfill their CLE requirements each year.

Our goal is to schedule a variety of programming that covers topics that are timely, interesting and thought-provoking. We engage leading experts and legal scholars to address these topics so you are informed on up-to-date laws, cases and trends in practice.

For 32 years, Carolina Law has been home to the Festival of Legal Learning, the largest CLE program in the state. At Festival, lawyers will have the opportunity to satisfy all CLE requirements during a four-day virtual program with over 28 sessions led by recognized experts in their fields including members of our distinguished faculty.

Carolina Law also prides itself on developing new opportunities for CLE events that cover specialized topics such as expert witness school, U.S. Supreme Court Review and Preview, and Legal Assistance for Military Personnel as well as student-run symposia.

Whether you need a couple of hours of CLE credit or all 12, we have you covered.
